Re: Nikon APS-C for more DOF

Hi Nick,


No, there are many photographs of single butterflies in the gallery.

Also, I think DOF will be similar regardless of focal lengths for the same field of view, as the DOF calculator will show.

Yes, I think you're right about this. I've seen it proven at longter distances.

Maybe one solution is to shoot with APS-C format, which will have more DOF for the same FL.

But in any case I do not think DOF will be limiting.

Maybe Andrew knows what he's aiming for. We don't know how much detail he needs nor how much DOF that will require.
